Hi there, my name is Luke and I am a tutor for Calculus, Statistics, Accounting, Economics, Physics and Chemistry for A Head Start. I’m currently completing my second year at the University of Canterbury studying Electrical Engineering.
I have a passion for seeing others achieve in their schooling and enjoy passing on my expertise. I believe with the right approach to problems and a couple of basic concepts, you can complete most of the NCEA assessments to excellence standard. My tutoring style is quite personal. I modify my teaching methods to work out what works well for you and teach in the most effective style.
I graduated Burnside High School with a platinum service award after achieving excellence in each level. Having completed the system myself, I know the tips and tricks to achieving excellence, which helped me gain Burnside’s excellence awards in maths every year of high school. My all-around abilities and attitude towards school also helped me achieve the South General Excellence award. I also completed Cambridge and the STAR Mathematics courses. During my years at high school, I was also my class representative on the South Division Council, a South Divisional Prefect, Staff Support Prefect, Computer Support Leader and an academic tutor for Chemistry and Mathematics.
Outside of school and University, I’m an air cadet, where I have achieved solo flight. At the unit I am a member of the Professional Development Unit, where we help our cadets achieve their goals. Through this organisation I have completed over 50 camps, including 3 weeklong promotional courses, teaching classroom lessons and leadership skills. Last year I returned to staff 3 of these courses. I also represented New Zealand at the International Air Cadet Exchange in the USA.
I look forward to working with you!Go Back
